Creating an outdoor fairy garden together is a perfect way to introduce young children to the thrill and contentment of working with nature. Grow a variety of miniature plants and wild flowers, adding complementary fairy decorations such as miniature solar lights, lanterns, ornamental butterflies, birds and bees, magical runes, fairy ornaments and statues.
Look for small, low growing plants and make sure there are plenty of places for your fairy visitors to shelter from prying human eyes. Think about an indoor fairy garden too. Indoor garden fairy decorations could include a water feature (real or illusory using mirrors), a fairy house ornament (you’ll find that many of the famous china manufacturers produce miniature cottages and even trinket boxes in the shape of toadstools and other fairy decorations that would provide a perfect home for your indoor garden fairy).
You can make or buy paper or fabric flowers, use doll’s house seats and tables and provide a bonsai tree for shade. Let your imagination run wild and have fun with your fairy decorations, wherever you choose to use them.
Another popular idea to bring some fairy whimsy to your home, a fairy wall makes the perfect fantasy fairy decoration for your little princess. Adapt the theme to better suit the tastes of a little boy by featuring pixies, elves, wizards and woodland animals.
Silver, pewter and even plastic photo frames can be found with intaglio, embossed or painted fairy decorations and you can complete the wall with shelves for all those much loved books of fairy tales. Add some twinkling fairy lights, glow in the dark stars and sweet dreams are assured!
